Yes we are extremely pleased with the stand and canopy. It was custom built for us and the gentleman does awesome work. He isnt cheap but neither is his work and its all real wood, no particle board or MDF..
Good eye Henry, the original sump broke trying to fit it into the cabinet so I cut all the baffles out , cut them shorter and put them into a 20Gal long tank..

Everything looks great, If that wall is vertical, you might think about building it up from the front of the tank to the back. You will be glad later when you go reef, 3x the spaces for coral.

No plans to go reef Hinds, I like the fish but not really into all the corals, anemones etc.. Some of them are cool but I think they can be alot of work and alot of money also.. Ya never know I guess but I think I will be a FOWLR guy..

Another quick update, the cycle is coming along, ammonia was at 3ppm last night and nitrite was at .5 Got the ATO stuff installed into the sump and got the controller in too.. Still looking for a suitable container that will fit in/behind the stand for the top up water..
